The key switch, the nuetral safty switch, the starter relay in the fuse relay panel under the hood and the security system can all cause a no start. Check first that the engine will crank by putting power right on the small wire at the starter. If it cranks turn the key on and see if it'll start and run ( it might not ) ( security system at'll fire up and then quit ) If it desn't crank at all this way them the starter and or the battery cable connection is at fault ( most likly at the battery positive ) You can't fix this by looking you have to take the wire off scrape the battery and the cable good and then put the cable back on do the negitive first leaving it off till you get the positive done and back on then hook up the negitive last. The negitive may be clean. If the starter still no crank then the starters bad or the battery is no good.

I assume the wire to the starters solenoid has no power going through it. A fuseable link is incorporated inside this wire inches away from the solenoid's connection. Some times wiggling it while someone holds the ignition ket to the starting position will tell you if the fuseable link has an open in it. The easiest way to check by yourself is to use an OHM meter to check the wire for continuity. If the meter reads OL by testing this wire from the solenoids connection and well more than a foot away, the link is no good. If you get a reading of 0000 or better the wire is fine. Then you have a faulty electrical ignition switch instead that needs to be replaced

If its a new starter check and see that the wires are hooked up right, could be time for a new starter, or starter relay on the fender well, or the ignition switch is bad.

How do you remove the wires from the solenoid of a 1995 S-10 chey with a 4.3L w engine? How is the starter removed really.


remove batter cable from batter. follow postive wire down to starter. Should be some "clips" holding wire into place on the waay down to starter. Loosen those clips and take the wire out. Remove wires from stater. Remove two starter bolts. Job is done. By removing the wires out of those clips you give yourself enough slack to easily do this job. If there still isn't enough room for you, it's not suggested but occsaionaly done, once those wires are removed from the clips, remove starter bolts, the starter will hang by the wires while you remove the wires. This can damage the wires and maybe the solenoid on the new starter. That's why it's NOT SUGGESTED.

My starter won't stop starting, and my key doesnt stop it


Check the wires at the starter, and inspect the wires at the starter solenoid for any damage or missing wire insulation allowing the wires to make contact with each other or ground, and check the wire to the "S" terminal on the starter solenoid to be sure that it is not touching the main battery cable at the "Bat" or main terminal on the starter solenoid.

If there is no problem with the wires to the starter solenoid, especially the wire to the "S" terminal on the starter solenoid, and there is no after-market alarm installed with a starter enable, then the problem will be with the ignition switch.
